The last wheel arch done.



I spent the entire day inside the boot cleaning it out, what a job!

71 1750 GTV Restoration

sill primed



Door gaps look pretty good.




Finally managed to get a coat of primer on the roof , stoked at that



The lines under the door handles are still a bit low, however I should be able to get them right with a bit more work




any progress is good progress in my book

I have chosen Giallio Fly as the final colour
Starting to get some base coat on a few areas now.

I take my hat off to those professional painters out there. You guys are artists

Righto, made some good progress over the last couple of days



Front wheel Well


First coat of base on the left door


Engine bay coming along, just a few more base coat touch ups to sort out and it will
be clear coat time.

I gave Raptor a go for the first time. It looks like it will work out quite nicely
spraying tinted out of my 3mm nozzle "Star" gun.
I am going to use this on all the wheel wells and the spare wheel area underneath and in the boot.




I can See the Light! (faintly)

Looking the goods

Wow! Loving the colour. Can't wait to see it finished. Have you decided on an interior colour? Look forward to more posts and pictures

Scaliano1300 - thanks, diffinetely looking forward to seeing the difference in the sun

I managed to get the raptor on the rest of the wheelarches and the underside of the spare wheel well
Still contemplating if I will do inside the spare well too.

Probably all I can do for this weekend.
